For sunny days—or to create some sunshine when there isn’t any—here’s a recipe from B.C. Strawberries that can offer a throwback to the carefree days of summer.
1 bottle (750 ml) dry white wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio)
1/2 cup orange liqueur
2 tbsp granulated sugar
3 cups quartered local strawberries
1 cup white cranberry juice
1 cup chilled lemon-flavoured sparkling water
mint sprigs, for garnish
In a large glass pitcher, combine wine, orange liqueur and sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add strawberries and juice. Refrigerate until chilled.
Just before serving, stir in sparkling water. Fill each glass with ice cubes; pour sangria over top.
Garnish with mint sprigs.
Tip: To make fruit ice cubes, place 1 small strawberry (cut in half if large), into each ice cube compartment; fill with water or juice.
Freeze until solid, about 4 hours.
